8 years ago, Forbes started calculating NFL team values.  From that time, the average NFL team has seen a 211% increase in value and is now worth $898 million [The Business of Football].  The steady increase in broadcasting fees, which equal more than MLB and the NBA combined, has become the main source for player salaries (thanks in part to the NFL Network).  The teams are definitely benefitting as well with a $30.8 million yearly income before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization.

Take a look at the individual NFL Team Valuations.  If you had the choice, wouldn’t you rather see your client go to a financially stable organization with a large amount of operating income to spend?  Also take a look at the 1-year value change (%).  It may be worthwhile to try to land a client in an up-and-coming city, where the player will have an easier time making his name while the organization grows to new heights.
